Diplomático Selección De La Familia 70cl 43°
With the launch of Selección de La Familia, Diplomático continues to move upmarket.
Concocted by the two maestros roneros: Tito Cordero and Nelson Hernandez, this new cuvée intended for rum lovers is the fruit of the blend of mainly cane honey rums (90%) and molasses.
Complex and balanced by its aging for 12 years in American oak ex-Bourbon barrel and Sherry barrel, and by its distillation in pot-still and Barbet column.
Upon tasting, this rum reveals intense aromas of vanilla, caramel, red fruit and oak.
This rum fits perfectly as an aperitif and at the end of the meal with a small square of dark chocolate.

At the end of the 19th century, in Venezuela, Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez discovered a passion for sources and methods making the success of traditional beverages.
He was fascinated by the subtle complexities of surrounding factors such as sunlight and humidity that affect the production of rum. He collected both liqueurs and exotic rums and became famous for his well-stocked supplies quickly nicknamed the "Ambassador Reserves" in reference to his status and his love for good things in life.
He studied production methods used in Jamaica, a reference in the field at the time. On other islands of the Antilles, he scrupulously observed the refining of sugar cane and imagined variations to create a new type of rum. Over time, a clever combination of ingredients, wooden barrels and honey led Don Juancho to create Ron Diplomático.
